"Dryosaurus" facts

This plant eater may have grown up to be large but most specimens are small. Dryosaurus was lightly built dinosaur and only defense was to run away. Therefore, it is possible that many animals died young. Its teeth were distinctive-they had long roots and leaf shaped crowns. They were designed to cut up leaves and other soft vegetation . It main problem was how to avoid getting stepped on by Diplodocus Camarasaurus and Brachiosaurus who were all 30 time bigger
